3-4 JULY 2018

POSTSHOW REPORT BUILDNZ | DESIGNEX 2018 – A GREAT SUCCESS! The building, design, and construction industries came out in force at NZ’s largest trade industry show, buildnz | designex. This year’s event has been deemed a great success by the thousands of visiting industry professionals and leading exhibiting suppliers who attended the 2-day exhibition at Auckland’s ASB Showgrounds early July. There were many highlights including the first ever KiwiBuild Summit – filled to capacity the summit presented the challenges of the KiwiBuild program’s goal of building 100,000 homes, suggested solutions and generated lively debate amongst all who attended. Thank you to everyone who supported the Summit and we look forward to seeing you all again for the KiwiBuild Summit in 2019! Other feature destinations included a showcase of the latest technology in the newly created Innovation Quarter, the PrefabNZ interactive feature examined the future of building efficiency, we explored the latest trends and designs at designex and broadened everyone’s industry knowledge from the invaluable seminar series. Both buildnz | designex and the KiwiBuild Summit would like to thank all of its exhibition partners, sponsors, trade associations and the many leading industry brands that supported this year’s event – we look forward to working with you all again next year and growing on what has already been an outstanding success.
